Oxford is a charming small town with a slow and lazy speed limit of 25 mph and no traffic lights. Surrounded by water on three sides, the town enjoys a nautical ambiance from all venues. The town park offers expansive water views of sailboats passing by, and dining options are nearly all waterfront. The Strand, a public sandy beach, all afford residents the chance to interact with the water. Grand historic homes along S. Morris Street intersperse with charming cottages home to full-time and weekend residents. The many marinas offer first-class accommodations for boaters, and the Tred Avon Yacht Club hosts a very active sailing community.
